How to get my scammer tag removed? Here's the story:
Ok, here is what happened, Maxwell Payne and I made a deal. He was going to buy my searing plasma slo-poke for his Hellfire Grenadier's Softcap and his Orbiting fire armored authority if I added 7 keys. BUT, he had two unusual armored authorities. One was Hellfire and the other was orbiting fire. He accidentally placed his Hellfire one in the trade and the trade went through. I, being a jerk, did not give the unusual back immediately. Instead, I blocked him on both outpost and from steam. I faced a ban. I did not know that I would be banned for a mistake he had made of putting the wrong unusual in the trade. So I did not care so much. But then, I realized I was banned from outpost. I really did not want a ban from outpost. I unblocked Maxwell Payne and said I was sorry for being the way that I was. I gave him his Hellfire Armored Authority back and he gave me the Orbiting fire one that was originally part of the deal that we had. I gave it back in hopes of being unbanned from outpost because it is my favorite trading website and I'd do anything to get myself unbanned. Maxwell and I worked everything out. I gave his Unusual back. There shouldn't be a problem anymore I hope.

THAT was my appeal up above and here is where I made it: http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/76561198073517830-scootis-mcpootis-sr-ban.60707/

I made a mistake but gave the hat back a day later. Steam rep hasn't really looked at it or just ignored it FOR MONTHS. I just want to cash out but I can't just because of this one simple mistake I made. It was my first offense. But no second chances apparently and I can never cash out...

add Mattie and ask for free items and to be unbanned from steam, its a secret code and he'll know what it means.

if his brother got marked as scammer, he'll have gotten marked because they believe it was an alt. happened to a friend of mine. get the brother to directly prove its not an alt somehow and they'll remove the mark.

Steamrep seems pretty final in their assesment. You were tagged and banned because you scammed someone. It makes no difference that you backpedaled when you got punished for it, you still tried to rip someone off.
The ban is applied by the trading sites, not Steamrep. You would have to bug them about getting the ban lifted.

I thought we were talking about you and your brother not a friend and his? Either way, it's unlikely he'll be untagged.

trading sites use steamrep bans. you'll need to get unmarked on SR before outpost or bazaar will unban you.

yeah im aware of that. and also. i dont see it really fair that after making just one mistake, im marked as a scammer FOREVER. they act like they control ♥♥♥♥ing tf2. anyways, i gave the hat back. i know i made a mistake but even then does that deserve a permanent scammer mark? i might as well be scamming thousands of ppl because id still be marked....see my point? all i wanted was maybe a temporary mark and this is only my first offense. this sucks

The problem is that steamrep doesn't tell them to do that. They do it themselves voluntarily and it's their right to do so.

the site is programmed to do it automatically actually..i wasnt even banned by a real person on outpost. i was banned by "System". so yeah. marked as a scammer? too bad. ur also banned from all of our other sites and u can forget about cashing out

I know that, and many backpack.tf users (not sure about other sites) still think that the program that autobans you is too lenient. Either way, the websites are not being told by steamrep to ban you. The program that does it is used voluntarily.

It is interesting that you get banned by a macine ,with out looking at what happened . & why isSteam involed in bans ,in sted of letting an other company run it .I saw a a U Tube with Gabe on it,I don't know if if was joke or not .it said theymore mony on selling Games ,than making them . The person that made Minrova , I wish he update it .It to me was one of the Best Mod made. An other point I would to see Good mod's for Euro truck 2run through Steam . I have gotting a LOT of bugs .I AM Willing To PAY for THEM . I found one place thatI could down load & pay for them , you have to keep paying , but it worth it ,Thank you

Right, can somebody translate this?
From what I can decipher this person thinks that:

Steamrep is Steam -Thay are not the same thing, Steamrep is a user made service that marks people who are scammers and whatnot

The ban was fully automated -He was reported to Steamrep(which isn't Valve) for ripping off someone. After he got marked as a scammer he gave the hat back and wants to be unmarked despite the fact that he totally did it.

The ban was not looked at -He filed an appeal. Which was rejected because, as stated by himself, he totally did the scamming that he was tagged for.

Valve makes money by selling games -Well duh, they are a game developer, amoung other things

something about an old mod he wants updated -Irrelevent

He wants Eurotuck 2 mods, but they are buggy -You really shouldn't post while on ectasy

He apparently pays a subscription for mods -Either those are in fact DLC or you really do not understand how a mod works. If someone charges for a mod of a game they can get the crap sued out of them for copywrite violation.

So the lesson here is don't tweak and use the internet.
